Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Fast and Easy Weeknight Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chile Sauce

    Chicken Enchiladas    

 This is a fast and easy weeknight throw together meal!  With leftover chicken or store bought chicken, you won't be spending a ton of time putting this together.  I love enchiladas!  It's a go to meal at the spur of the moment, because I can put this together in about 30 minutes or less from prep to oven.  Fast and easy and so awesome!   I love the flat enchiladas over the rolled, although both are great.  Flat is a New Mexico favorite.  I use individual casserole dishes so my husband and I have our own.   Although we make our own green chile sauce, I grab the 505 Green Chile sauce off the shelf of my local store when I'm in a hurry.  You can usually find green chile sauce at most stores, and most Whole Foods and Sprouts carry 505 Green Chile Sauce and typically other brands, as well.

This is a layered dream of ingredients. A comfort food for sure. It's fun putting together this little casserole with all the ingredients of my choice. Sometimes I use black beans, sometimes corn, sometimes both. Your main squeeze here is the chicken, corn tortillas, green chile and, of course, the cheese! I can put these two casseroles together using 1 chicken breast for the two of us, so a little goes along way! Enjoy!

Chicken, onions, black beans, a little green chile sauce.

Spoon a little more green chile sauce on top of cheese, (if you have room!). and Bake 30 minutes or until heated thru and the cheese is bubbly.
Recipe Notes

I have posted a picture of the 505 Hatch Green Chile Sauce for you to see what it looks like.  It's amazing for an already made sauce.

You can put together a full 9x11 casserole dish, just repeat the instructions on layering and increase your tortillas from 6 to 9 and adjust your ingredients so you have enough to fill a larger casserole dish.
